1 small Pumpkin mine was probably about 2 pounds
1/2 C Sucanat
1/2 C Sugar (I mixed because I don't care for the overwhelming molasses flavor)
1/2 C Water
2 Tbs Chinese 5 Spice Blend
10 Drops of Wild Orange essential oil (I used doTERRA EO but I would think that an orange flavoring would work or even orange zest)
To begin I cut my pumpkin in half, took out the seeds, and roasted it at 350 degrees until tender. Then I pulled out the meat from the skin and put in the food processor with about a half cup of water to make a puree. I put the puree in the pan along with all of the ingredients listed above, except the essential oil.
Stir all of the ingredients together and allow mixture to simmer for an hour or more, until it has reached a think consistency and it will not roll off of a spoon. When desired consistency has been reach remove from heat and allow to cool for a bit before adding your essential oil. Stir in EO and then bottle. I froze most of mine as I have read that it will only keep for about 2 weeks in the fridge.
